10 of the strongest beers from around the world

 

10) Sam Adams Utopias 2017 – ABV: 28% (United States)

This brew is reminiscent of a rich vintage port, old cognac, or fine sherry with notes of dark fruit, subtle sweetness, and a deep rich malty smoothness.

9) BrewDog Tactical Nuclear Penguin – ABV: 32% (Scotland)

When this beer was released in 2009, it was the strongest beer ever produced, and so began the craze to create insanely powerful brews. This beer is freeze distilled three times before being bottled. The result is a fragrant, thick-bodied ice beer with notes of roasted coffee and chocolate.

8) Struise Black Damnation VI, Messy – ABV: 39% (Belgium)

This pitch black beer has been described as tasting smoky, bitter, malty and roasted with distinct liquorice, chocolate and coffee flavours.

7) Baladin Esprit De Noel – ABV: 40% (Italy)

Left to rest in oak barrels, the colour is straw yellow and the taste is smooth with gentle notes of wood and chocolate.

6) BrewDog Sink The Bismarck – ABV: 41% (Scotland)

Kettle hopped, dry hopped, then freeze hopped for a deep fruit, resinous and spicy aroma. This is a full out attack on your taste-buds.

5) BrewDog End of History – ABV: 55% (Scotland)

Made in a batch of just 11 bottles for $765 each, this beer stirred up quite a lot of controversy because of the vessel it came in – a taxidermy squirrel!

4) Schorschbrau’s Schorschbock 57% Finis Coronat Opus – ABV: 57.7% (Germany)

This rare German beer was made in a limited batch of 36 bottles. Impossible to pronounce especially after drinking one!

3) Koelschip Start The Future – ABV: 60% (The Netherlands)

This Dutch brewery created Start The Future in response to BrewDog’s End of History. Nice one!

2) Brewmeister Armageddon – ABV: 65% (Scotland)

Despite having a high alcohol content, this beer also displays a good amount of malts, sweet flavours, and subtle aromas.

1) Brewmeister Snake Venom – ABV: 67.5% (SCOTLAND)

Pours a dark amber in colour with no carbonation due to the high ABV. Remarkably it still tastes like a beer despite the high alcohol content.

If your interested in seeing the reaction to people trying Snake Venom I recommend watching this video
